3-Part Arrow Story Arc to Introduce New Black Canary

4 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »


The character of Laurel Lance on the CW’s hit show Arrow has been one of the less popular members of the regular cast. However, that may change after the trilogy of episodes that will air after the winter break, which details her transformation into the Black Canary.


There’s a new Black Canary in town…Or at least, there will be soon! Previously on the CW’s Arrow, we’ve seen a character named Sarah Lance take on the costumed identity of the Canary, fighting alongside the Arrow (Stephen Amell), only to meet an untimely demise on a rooftop at night. Sarah was the sister of the Arrow’s on-again, off-again love-interest Laurel. Now, as fans of the show know, Laurel is training to fight, under the tutelage of Ted “Wildcat” Grant. It won’t be long before she dons the costume and blonde wig associated with the comic book heroine Black Canary. »

Arrow to explore Laurel’s transformation into the new Black Canary with a trilogy of episodes

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next week sees Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen teaming up with Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen for The CW’s big two-part DC crossover between Arrow and The Flash, after which is seems that Arrow will shift its attention to Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) transformation into the new Black Canary. We’ve already had a first-look at Laurel as the Canary, and now executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has revealed to THR that the character will soon take centre stage for a “three-part trilogy” focussing on her journey to becoming the costumed crime-fighter:

“Laurel appears in the Arrow episode [of the crossover]. She’s not as present in these episodes, but that is because we’ve been building up to her appearance as the Black Canary. We sort of said that Sara was the Canary, but Laurel is the Black Canary. Episodes 10, 11 and 12 are a three-part trilogy that are about her. And episode 13 I think I can spoil, »

Black Canary Gets An "Arrow" Trilogy

24 November 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Last week came the reveal of Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance dressed in her Black Canary outfit. Fans of the show have long been wondering when we will see the full transformation and Laurel's onscreen debut in the outfit. Turns out the first couple of episodes after the show's winter break will be about just that.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke with THR recently about Laurel's involvement in the upcoming "Arrow" & "The Flash" crossover event. In his answer, he reveals the plans for Black Canary:

"Laurel appears in the Arrow episode. She's not as present in these episodes, but that is because we’ve been building up to her appearance as the Black Canary. We sort of said that Sara was the Canary, but Laurel is the Black Canary.

Episodes 10, 11 and 12 are a three-part trilogy that are about her. And episode 13 I think I can spoil, is called 'Canaries.' »

Arrow Season 3, Episode 9 Synopsis; "The Climb" - 'The Arrow' Vs. 'Ra's al Ghul'

20 November 2014 4:30 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ra’S Al Ghul Gives Oliver An Ultimatum; Dinah Lance Pays Laurel A Visit — Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) returns to Starling City and tells Oliver (Stephen Amell) that her father, Ra’s al Ghul (guest star Matt Nable) has given Oliver 48 hours to find Sara’s killer or the League of Assassins will start killing the citizens of Starling City. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is stunned when her father (Paul Blackthorne) delivers a very special Christmas gift – her mother, Dinah (guest star Alex Kingston). Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) tries to make amends with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Oliver sets a meeting with Ra’s al Ghul. Thor Freudenthal directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Keto Shimizu (#309).

Supernatural Alum Takes Up Cupid's Bow After Losing Black Canary Role

19 November 2014 11:16 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tonight, The CW's latest offering of Arrow finds Oliver dealing with an obsessive stalker bent on putting all of the Arrow's enemies in a bodybag.  The role of Cupid will be played by Amy Gumenick, who previously portrayed Mary Winchester on Supernatural.  Originally, Gumenick tested for the role of Laurel Lance on Arrow but that role obviously went to Katie Cassidy, another CW alum - Supernatural, Melrose Place, Gossip Girl.   She told The Warp, "I auditioned for [Arrow] several times.  I first auditioned when they were casting the pilot, actually, for Katie Cassidy's role.  It was a show I wanted to be a part of.  I've since then auditioned for various other guest stars and recurring [roles] here and there, but the one didn't hit.  But [Rapaport] is a loyal and an amazingly down to earth person who really believes in his actors.

Is Oliver Ready for Love? 'Arrow' Co-Star Weighs the Odds!

19 November 2014 9:43 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s no secret Arrow’s Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) hasn’t had the greatest luck in the romance department. Unfortunately for Starling City’s ex-millionaire, The CW hero is about to meet the most dangerous admirer of them all: the vigilante’s self-proclaimed No. 1 fan Carrie Cutter -- the lethal villainess, Cupid -- portrayed by Swedish-born actress Amy Gumenick.

Cupid is the god of love in classic mythology, but the DC Comics character – an enemy of the Arrow and Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) – is a dark twist to the romantic icon who has a, shall we say... intense take on relationships, going so far as to kill. (Beware future suitors!) Considering that she’s infatuated with all facets of the vigilante, Carrie may not be someone anyone from Team Arrow would want to encounter.

In a candid chat ahead of Wednesday's episode, titled "Draw Back Your Bow," Gumenick -- last seen on Supernatural -- spills [link=tt »

New Image Of 'Arsenal' And 'Black Canary' In Upcoming Episode Of Arrow

18 November 2014 6:18 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There's obviously a lot of excitement surrounding the debut of Katie Cassidy as Black Canary in Arrow, and after a couple of official images of the actress fully suited up, we now have a nice behind the scenes shot courtesy of Emily Bett Rickards. It obviously doesn't reveal much other than giving us another look at the acress in costume, but we do get to see Black Canary and Arsenal together. The big question of whether or not she'll have her powers remains unanswered...   In Between Turkey and Soda.

‘Arrow 3×03: Corto Maltese’ Review

18 November 2014 12:12 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Erik Oleson, Beth Schwartz | Directed by Stephen Surjik


As Oliver, Roy and Diggle head to Corto Maltese to find Thea and bring her home, Laurel tries to be the next masked Vigilante appears of Starling City.


Okay, I am at odds with this episode. On the one side we have a very interesting plot about Laurel as she gives masked vigilantism out as a way to work out the anger she has been keeping to herself since Sara died, which I find to be really very interesting. But then on the other we have what should be an interesting plot about what happened to Thea since she left Starling City at the end of the last season with her Father.

Okay on to the Laurel side of things and as I said in my previous Arrow review, I am enjoying where they are taking the older »

What Laurel Lance Becoming Black Canary Means for Arrow Season 3

18 November 2014 9:04 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Last week, one of The CW’s hit series, Arrow gave us a first look at actress Katie Cassidy, who plays Laurel Lance on the superhero series, in her new Black Canary costume with the description that the suit will surface in the tenth episode of Arrow Season 3, which is scheduled to be the show’s mid-season premiere. There have been major debates, especially this season, about whether or not it’s too early for Laurel to become the Black Canary based on the background that she has and that we have only seen her training for the past 2-3 weeks, training that was set in motion by the death of her sister Sara, who had up until that point been Canary, in the Arrow Season 3 premiere. Today we are doing a mini format of a roundtable discussion regarding this topic, and we (the participating writers) will be looking at the issue of… »

Arrow season 3 episode 6 review: Guilty

14 November 2014 7:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Will Roy ever come out of the scenery and develop as a character in his own right in Arrow season 3? Here's Caroline's review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.6 Guilty

The hunt for Sara's killer is still on, despite a brief respite from the season-long mystery. Roy isn't to blame after all, but his confession to Oliver and Laurel has made his position in Team Arrow a little uncertain anyway. That's good in a few ways, but chief among them is that it gives Roy something to struggle with in a season that has done absolutely nothing with the character.

The kid sidekick in a superhero show is rarely the most compelling member of a team, but season three of Arrow has actively relegated Roy to the background, immediately after giving him the Arsenal (finally confirmed as Roy's alter ego this week) suit, and it's been perplexing for fans of the character. »

New Stunts Featurette For Arrow Takes A Closer Look At Thea's Training

14 November 2014 4:04 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, welcomed by his devoted mother Moira (Susanna Thompson), beloved sister Thea (Willa Holland) and former flame Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). With the aid of his trusted chauffeur/bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey), the computer-hacking skills of Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and the occasional, reluctant assistance of former police detective, now beat cop, Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), Oliver has been waging a one-man war on crime. »

Arrow First Look: Felicity & Ray's Fancy Date — and Its Shirtless Prologue!

13 November 2014 2:38 PM, PST | | See recent news »

By now, Arrow fans have probably seen the promo hinting at a smooch between Felicity and Ray.

But did you know when the blonde’s boss asks her to be his date to a work dinner, he also picks out a dress and some fancy jewels for her? At least that appears to be the case in the following photos from next Wednesday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c), which also features Arrow-obsessed stalker Carrie Cutter, aka Cupid (played by Supernatural‘s Amy Gumenick).

So will the professional evening out lead to something more?

Thursday’s Reign (The CW, 9/8c) introduces viewers to Francis’ estranged sister Claude, and as you’ll see in TVLine’s exclusive first look, she is every bit her mother’s daughter.

Following her arrival at Court, it takes less than a minute for Claude — who’s probably drunk, as Catherine points out — to awkwardly mention her new nephew around Francis and Mary, then make Kenna feel like the least-wanted girl at the party.

Review: 'Arrow' - 'Guilty'

13 November 2014 6:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of last night's "Arrow" coming up just as soon as I know just enough to make me dangerous... We're still early enough in season 3 that I'm not especially worried about the bigger picture, but it does feel like the two main architectural pillars — the mystery of who killed Sara, and Oliver's adventures as Amanda Waller's captive assassin — aren't as sturdy as last year's. There were times in the first two seasons when the island flashbacks felt obligatory and/or clumsy, but there was still an urgency to them that's sorely lacking in the Hong Kong scenes. The show has always loved to parallel Oliver's past and present, but here it felt like overkill because the repressed memory material was slipped into the same episode that was already hitting us over the head with the similarities between Oliver's current sidekick and Ted Grant's former one, both of them murderers. »

13 November 2014 12:06 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's been coming for a while, but now you can see Katie Cassidy suit up for Arrow season three...

We've deciced to err on the side of caution here, even though fans of the show will probably have seen this coming a mile off.

However, if you're a fan of Arrow who doesn't know what's coming for Katie Cassidy's character Laurel, and want to maintain that surprise for the show, don't go scrolling past our spoiler squirrel, Daphne...

Still here? Then you probably already know that Laurel is following in her sister's footsteps and becoming the heroic Black Canary.

Today, we got our first look at the newly kitted-out character in a new publicity image, which you can see here...

Arrow season 3 episode 10, Left Behind, will mark the first outing for Laurel's Black Canary.

Arrow Recap: The Boxing Glove Arrow... and Other Stuff

12 November 2014 6:44 PM, PST | | See recent news »

This week on The CW’s Arrow, onetime Starling City vigilante Ted Grant landed in Oliver’s sights, while Roy came to believe that it was he who killed Sara. But first and foremost….

We got the Boxing Glove Arrow. Which obviously must be what showrunner Marc Guggenheim was teasing during this Q&A, about delivering a moment that fans have been asking about since the pilot. Of course, Arrow being the gritty superhero drama it is, having a glove “accordion” out of an arrow would be a bit goofy, so they instead orchestrated an “organic” way for it to come about, »
